If the will and codicil passed personal property to four beneficiaries, two of whom predeceased the testator (your mother), usually, the bequests would pass to any heirs of the predeceased heirs. Without actually reading the title and the or the will it's hard to say, but that is the general rule. If you want to send me the actual language of the bequests I'll be happy to give you an opinion. I am not sure if your question had anything to do with the living trust.
